TLC will telecast Jill Duggar's delivery special episode of 19 Kids And Counting on 5 May and will reveal why the couple, who had planned a home birth for their baby, instead opted for a cesarean section, as Jill was 11 days overdue.

In the two-hour special episode, the 23-year-old reality TV star and her husband Derick Dillard will narrate the change of plans for their son Israel David Dillard birthing.

"I think when my water first broke I was really nervous. I was like, this means labour is going to start. OK, this is for real. This is really going to happen," the reality star says in the promo released by TLC.

The Duggar daughter also revealed that her contractions were unbearable after 17 hours of labour pain in spite of her mother Michelle and sister Jessa Duggar's helping to calm her down.

"Contractions kick in really hard without a lot of break in between. I'm thinking, if I have to do this for another 24 hours or 48 hours I'm gonna need a lot of coaching."

But when the Dillard couple saw that things are not going as planned, they decided to bring the baby with help from doctors.

"We have really been in labor on and off. We haven't been able to get things going. So at this point, we felt that it would be a good time, while I'm not in an emergency situation, to get to the hospital."
